Plant your Painted Lady, medium sized, hardy waterlily in a wide, shallow container using loam soil. (Read our instructions on loam soil on our home page.) Cover the roots in soil but leave the crown of the plant above the soil as the crown of the plant needs to receive sunlight to grow. Never add rocks or stones to the top of the container as this may hinder the growth of the plant. Place the container in full sun, 6-12 inches beneath the surface of the water. Once the plant is established, you can move it a little lower in the pond, up to 24 inches beneath the surface of the water. Fertilize your waterlily once a month with pond tabs for best bloom and healthy growth. Once your waterlily is established, you should have blooms all summer long, often into fall.
